At the same hospital 5 years later in 2009, a 2nd Liver Transplant LDLT was performed. Both patients were doing well until post-transplant 12 years in 1st case and 7 years in 2nd case. These operations were led by Myanmar Surgeon Professor Norman Hla and surgical team. It is recorded in history for Professor Norman Hla as a Pioneer of Liver transplant in Myanmar. Former & first Professor and Head of HBP Department, Prof Than Lwin, tried to set up for Liver transplant program and developed the infrastructure with the support of Ministry of Health. At the same time, a team was built by sending trainees to oversea centre. After that, 3rd LDLT was operated in July 2015 but unfortunately the patient was lost. 4th LDLT, which was performed  in February 2016, had liver failure after 64 post op days.
